How being put to the test helped Alicia reach her highest happiness.
– KEYS SOULCARE
“Bliss is a beautiful destination, but you can often only reach its shores after a turning point. It’s as if the universe is testing you to be sure you are strong enough to make it through the murky waters, not just the serene ones, so that you can move to a new and unknown place in yourself.” — Alicia Keys
Ever feel like life is testing you, and one thing after another is popping up as you’re going about your life? In the midst of all the chaos, it can sometimes feel like we’re moving away from “getting there” and struggling to make it through the here and now.
In More Myself, Alicia reminds us that the path to true happiness comes with challenges. But, ultimately, getting through them makes life even sweeter. Our journeys to joy are often riddled with trials and tribulations that fine-tune our ability to receive and appreciate gifts — including the gift of deepening our relationship with ourselves.
The bottom line? Stay vigilant. Dig deeper into yourself and recognize that changes and challenges are to be expected as you move towards your highest self. You — and your bliss — are so worth it!
